Cotton Wilt and Root-Knot

Description: "Cotton wilt causes large preventable losses in the sandy soils of the cotton belt. Where root-knot also occurs, the injury is still greater. Wilt is caused by a soil-inhabiting fungus which plugs the water vessels in the stem of the plant. No treatment with fungicides, fertilizers, or any material applied to the soil or the plant will prevent it; but varieties of cotton which resist the disease have been developed by breeding and can be obtained through purchase from cooperators of the Department of Agriculture.... Root-knot is due to an eelworm which is a parasite on many crops. It can be controlled by the crop-rotation methods outlined in this bulletin." -- p. 2

Cowpeas

Description: "The cowpea is the most valuable legume for the Southern States and its use would be much more extensive were it not for the relatively high price of the seed, most of which is still picked by hand. Particular attention is therefore given to the matter of harvesting seed by machinery now in very successful use in several communities. These methods are so far perfected that the cowpea seed crop should receive much greater attention in favorable localities." -- p. 5. This bulletin also discusses the use of cowpeas for hay, seed mixtures of cowpeas and other crops, the nutritional value of cowpeas in animal feeds, growing practices, and the several different varieties of cowpea.
